South Dakota Governors Race-Being called a "toss up"

Cook Political Report says South Dakota Governor Race a Toss Up


News Staff - October 5, 2018

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - The Cook Political Report, an online non-partisan newsletter that analyzes elections, has now rated the South Dakota Governors race as a tossup.

The race was rated as solid for republicans at the end of August.

Democratic candidate Billie Sutton says his message is being heard.

We’ve known from the beginning that this race is competitive. South Dakotans deserve a governor that has their best interests in mind. I look forward to earning the votes of everyday South Dakotans over the next five weeks and bringing honesty, integrity and hard work back to Pierre.”

Jennifer Duffy of Cook Political writes, “After winning the primary, Noem‘s campaign seemed to take its foot off the gas, seemingly taking the race for granted.”

Duffy says while Republicans acknowledge that the race is very close today, they believe that the overwhelmingly Republican nature of the state will carry Noem across the finish line. Democrats are cautiously optimistic that they might pull off the upset of the cycle, with moderate Sutton gaining momentum in the midst of Washington unpopularity. The contest is now in the Toss Up column.

Voters will choose next month between Sutton, republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem, and Libertarian Kurt Evans.
